A helium balloon with a volume of 2.4 L contains 0.10 moles of gas at 25 degrees C and 1 atm of pressure. The balloon leaks 0.02 moles of gas until someone manages to seal the hole. What is the new volume of the balloon?© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com March 4, 2021, 8:52 pm ad1c9bdddf
The ideal gas law is PV=nRT.
P = 1 atm
V = 2.4 L
n = 0.10 mol
T = 25 C = 298 K
If you use the gas constant, R = 0.08208 ...
This solution involves calculating the volume of a balloon.
